The part of the mechanical integration procedure of a BIS78 sMDT and BIS7 RPC detectors. The three thin gas gaps of the RPC detector are mounted inside an aluminum frame which holds them together and limits gravitational sag. As in the ATLAS experiment cavern, the triplet RPC and the accompanying sMDT detectors are mounted on rails with independent mechanical supports.
